We dream of yellow (revisited)

by Jem Croucher

4 of 6 in the Jemverse ‘Yellow’ series

In the gun-metal grey of midwinter
When cold grips vice-like
and, huddled in blankets
we stay cocooned in the warmth
of a fruitcake and hot tea afternoon
and dream of yellow

Alpine River

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Even in the allegedly flat valley
The river ran boiling over its rocky bed
Looking out of our cabin window
I could see white electric splashes of water
Gashing along in evening gloom

Poem of the Day – Broken Steam

by paturnerlee

Broken Steam

 

Slaves to dreams, to memories; to fallen friends

Or were they just companions: overtly closed hearted, hiding

Residing in the world of pain; the strain of reason

The nights have gone cool, the days not as warm.
Sundown slips backward,

Dawn awakes later, shivering …by minutes,
Does it think we don’t notice?

and feel its warmth upon my skin

I saw a little London bus
on a table for a pound
At the car boot sale down on the Rec.
just waiting to be found
It’s been played with many times before
an original Matchbox toy
Something I was chuffed to find
for it’s sure to bring me joy

Flowering rose soothes

Lovers eyes bright
